Typing on an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch is easy using the on-screen Multi-Touch keyboard, but by default there’s no way to add a trademark, copyright or registered symbol. A convoluted work-around is to search for the symbol on the web then copy and paste it from a relevant result, but by adding the Emoji keyboard configuration via the Settings app it’s possible to add one of these symbols at any time.
It might sound complicated, but it’s easy to add an additional keyboard configuration to your device, and once enabled it takes only one tap of your finger to access. Read on to see how it’s done…
Start by opening the Settings app, then tap the General button. Next, select the Keyboards option.
Add a new keyboard
Tap the Keyboards button, then select Add New Keyboard… You’ll see a long list of additional keyboards available for use, tap the Emoji option. This keyboard configuration has now been added to your keyboard and can be accessed at any time while writing.
Access the Emoji keyboard
To access the Emoji keyboard, tap the Globe button which is situated in-between the 123 button and the Siri shortcut. If you have multiple keyboard configurations then tap and hold the Globe button and select the Emoji keyboard from the small pop-up window.
Add a trademark, copyright or registered symbol
To find the trademark, copyright and registered symbols, tap the !?# button at the bottom of the keyboard, then swipe the keyboard to the left several times. Eventually you’ll see the trademark, copyright and registered symbols. Tap on one to add it to your text.
